Polar Star, Akuoumaru Weapons Announced

With the next update almost upon us, Genshin Impact has announced two new weapons: Polar Star and Akuoumaru. You can wish for them on the upcoming Epitome Invocation (Weapon Banner) in Version 2.2. In response to Traveler feedback, we’ve been given information about Ascension Materials too. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know. So, for those of you who like to prepare in advance in order to get your Weapons in peak condition ASAP, read on!


Polar Star

First off we have the new 5-star weapon up for grabs. Polar Star (Bow), is described as “A pristine bow that is as sharp as the glaciers of the far north.” Its icy design seems to be inspired by the colder regions of Teyvat, perhaps Snezhnaya, and the element of Cryo in general. At Level 1, Refinement Rank 1, Polar Star has Base ATK 46, with CRIT Rate of 7.2% as its Additional Stat.

Akuoumaru

Next is the new 4-star weapon, which will be Akuoumaru (Claymore). It is described as the following: ‘The beloved sword of the legendary “Akuou.” The blade is huge and majestic, but is surprisingly easy to wield.’

As this is the first mention of the Akuou character to whom this claymore once belonged, we don’t know anything about them. But the fact that the name roughly translates to “evil” is definitely intriguing. Notably, the weapon appears to be related to the Hydro element due to its wavelike design and blue colour scheme. At Level 1, Refinement Rank 1, Akuoumaru has Base ATK 42, with ATK 9% as its Additional Stat.

Good luck to all Travelers who will be wishing on the banner and grinding for materials! Remember: both of these brand-new Version 2.2 Weapons are exclusive to this Weapon Banner for a limited duration only. As a result, they will not be available in the permanent Wanderlust Invocation Banner. Most importantly, don’t forget to use Epitomized Path to chart a course for the 5-star weapon of your choice.

Genshin Impact Version 2.2 is scheduled for release on October 13th, 2021.
